Zuckerman Spaeder LLP Receives Outstanding Achievement Award from Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs

June 10, 2013

Zuckerman Spaeder ‎LLP ‎received an ‎Outstanding ‎Achievement Award from the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights ‎and Urban Affairs. Partner Caroline E. Reynolds and associate Steven N. Herman accepted the award on behalf of the firm at the Wiley A. Branton Awards Luncheon. This award ‎is “presented each year to a select number ‎of firms for exceptional work with the Washington ‎Lawyers’ Committee for the previous year.” ‎The firm received this award in recognition of the collaborative effort ‎between Zuckerman ‎Spaeder and the Washington Lawyers’ Committee in successfully ‎representing a pro bono client in ‎litigation under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The ‎representation not only ‎resulted in a positive outcome for the client, it also advanced the goals of ‎the Washington ‎Lawyers’ Committee’s Equal Employment Opportunity Project’s efforts to ‎eliminate violations ‎of the FMLA and, in turn, to protect the employment rights of members of ‎protected groups.
